  1. virtual machine scale set - via PowerShell error: 'Required property 'type' not found in JSON

    Creating a VMSSet with AzureRM.Compute version 5.7.0 now fails with error:
    The request content was invalid and could not be deserialized: 'Required property 'type' not found in JSON. Path 'identity',

    Problem did not occur with AzureRM.Compute version e.g. 5.5.2

    Workaround:
    $VMSS.Identity = $null (go to line 102)
    ->leads to a successful deployment.

    I don't believe that the workaround is the expected behaviour - is it?

  2. Cannot add new disk to VM

    North Central U.S.

    I cannot create a new disk for an existing VM. When I go to the Disks section of the VM, there's no option for adding a disk, there's only a cloud with a raindrop. I don't know what that means.

  3. the hint ”Resetting the username will force this VM to reboot immediately.“ is not in line with the actual situation

    when resetting password for windows VM in Azure portal, there is a hint says "Resetting the username will force this VM to reboot immediately.." But actually it won't. The hint is not in line with the actual situation.

  4. Availability Set domain settings default behavior

    When testing deployment of an availability set with only 1 fault domain, I get the following error and deployment fails.
    "Deployment to resource group '(RG name)' failed.
    Additional details from the underlying API that might be helpful: At least one resource deployment operation failed. Please list deployment operations for details. Please see https://aka.ms/arm-debug for usage details."
    Obviously a single fault domain is a bad idea, but if it is not allowed, this should be a) explicitly documented and b) not offered as an option in the portal.
    I am providing feedback on the document here.
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/manage-availability
    Please update the portal…

  5. Fix autogenerated ARM templates for VMs (remove hardcoded RG name)

    In Azure portal when you create a VM you can download the template and parameters (for e.g. right before clicking "Create" button to create VM, you can click on "Download template and parameters").

    The template contains hardcoded resource group name inside the resourceId() function. This breaks things when you try to download and use the template. You cannot deploy this template even directly in the portal (since when you try to deploy template you're asked to enter resource group name, but a value is already hardcoded in the template).

  6. Resource Group Case

    When enabling Azure to Azure ASR on a Virtual Machine it converts the 'Resource Group' case to lowercase when viewing the Virtual machine. The case is correct if you use PowerShell to lookup the virtual machine.

  7. Choose WDDM or TCC mode during New Azure VM setup process

    For NV and NC instances, users should be given a choice at the point of VM creation to enable TCC or WDDM mode on the Nvidia Tesla GPU.

  8. Easy VM Instance comparison

    Provide a tool to easily compare Azure VMs across compute, storage, networking, and price. The doc page is atrocious: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/sizes

  9. Send notifications before VM is rebooted.

    If a VM is going to be rebooted, perhaps a little warning. I have had my production VM shutdown for no reason then spent several minutes trying to get logged back in. If I knew that it was or did happen, I may not be so concerned that my data has disappeared.

  12. Inherit tags on virtual machine extensions

    Many companies enforce tagging by denying resource creation if no tags are present. Using PowerShell, creating a VM gives an error because the extension (BGInfo) is not tagged. In order for this to work, you must explicitly use the -DisableBgInfo parameter. However, other extensions (like the one for Azure Security Center) could also cause this.

    Managed Disks (specifically for the OS) avoid this problem by inheriting the tags from the VM. PowerShell error:

    New-AzureRmVM -ResourceGroupName $rgName -Location $location -VM $vm -Tags @{Owner="me"} -Verbose
    New-AzureRmVM : The resource action 'Microsoft.Compute/virtualMachines/extensions/write' is disallowed by one or more
    policies.
    Policy identifier(s): '[{"policyDefintionId":"/subscriptions/00000000-1111-2222-3333-444444444444/providers/Microsof

  13. VM Extensions appearing as resources in resource groups

    1.The VM extensions are part of the VM. Therefore they should appear *under* the VM resource, not next to it. The other resources like Network Interface, NSG, Public IP appear *side-by-side* because they do not belong to a VM.
    2.When you have more than one VM in a resource group, it is impossible to tell which extension is under which VM in the list, since they all have the same name.
    3.There are no actions I can perform in the portal related to that resource. I can't change any configuration, I can't even delete it. Therefore it is useless to…

  15. Creating a VM in a pre-existing cloud service ports can overlap

    Sometimes when creating a VM and selecting an existing cloud service it will keep the external ports for powershell or RDP as their default values instead of "AUTO" which cannot be manually entered. If you don't notice this and fix the external port before creating it will fail in provisioning and require you to fill out all the information again.

  16. Error when using PowerShell template that is provided when creating a VM

    I walked through the Portal wizard for creating a new RM VM. At the end I clicked on "Download template and parameters". I then downloaded the PowerShell.

    When I ran it on my machine I got the following:

    Registering resource provider 'microsoft.compute'
    C:\Azure\deploy.ps1 : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'Force'.
    At line:1 char:1
    + .\deploy.ps1
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo : InvalidArgument: (:) [deploy.ps1], ParameterBindingException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NamedParameterNotFound,deploy.ps1

    I have Azure cmdlets 3.0 installed. I edited the deploy.ps1 file and removed the -force and everything worked as expected.

  17. Add check for quota limits for ASM 2 ARM migration validation

    When running "Move-AzureVirtualNetwork -Verify" it does not verify that any service limitation will be hit before migrating.
    If a quota is hit the migration process will stop.

  20. changing between subscriptions loses authenticated context and is amazingly frustrating

    once you've logged in, you should be logged in. changing subscriptions re-challenges a login which doesn't work... surprised this bug has been active this long
